However, I have to leave that as an exercise for the reader.
We later look at them in the Black Light. The entire project is a favorite. Grade 4 - In the past I have had 4th graders tear a witch profile out of Tissue paper after crumpling it.
It makes for a wonderful, lumpy, warty profile. We used scraps to complete it. I limited their palettes to black, white, yellow, green and orange and we painted on gray construction paper. Grade 1 - After learning the primary colors, we used to make a blotto using red, yellow and blue.
The following week, we cut out the blotto and used scraps to create blotto monsters. Halloween Ideas from Samantha Wilmoth Grade 4 classroom teacher ideas adaptable: We brainstorm as to why this is a time of year when our thoughts do tend to go to the past So one of the things I have done in the past is to create a pumpkin patch using brown paper grocery bags stuffed with newspapers Have a few pumpkins for the students to refer to.
Use rubber bands to twist off the tops, then take another brown paper bag and paint it with streaks of green top and bottom Slip the vine through the rubber band on the twisted top of the pumpkin and then attach the leaves using glue and clear tape till the glue dries Staples discretely applied work in a pinch from time to time, too.
Then I give the kids a writing assignment They can either write about "What I have harvested this year" a character counts assignment "Remembering My Ancestors" or other prompts that relate to our theme for the year.
We even do Pumpkin Math How much would it take to buy for each group I toast pumpkin seeds - then we do various division problems using the seeds on paper plates as manipulatives. The students write all kinds of word problems using pumpkins meaningfully as the theme.
I have my students write a lot of word problems throughout the year. It is my theory that if a student can write a meaningful word problem, then they can solve them, too. This could also be a house in moon shadow. I sometimes show the kids how to draw simplified bones - like the dog bones in cartoons.
Then I ask them to write their name in bones.
Sometimes kids make rubberized bones, bending to create the curve in the letter, but mostly they get the curve using a few bone shapes. They love doing this.
My favorite thing to do is to borrow a life-size skeleton from the science teacher and have the kids sketch from that. Then we do a simplified full body version. The culminating task is to have the kids draw the skeletons doing something - playing soccer, dancing, doing gymnastics.
These are eerily cute. I did not get complaints from my Jehovah Witness families. Sock Ghosts and Monsters - from Mary Ann Kohl Young children can trace around socks then turn them into all sorts of scary ghosts.
Fill the page with ghosts of different facial expressions. For variation - try monsters. Any drawing medium can be used. Even students up to grade 6 may enjoy making tube sock monsters. Halloween Tongue Twisters - from Lia One thing I have done that is quick and fun with elementary age students Grade 1 and up is read a book I have with Halloween Tongue Twisters and then we all draw one I have them printed out and cut into strips illustrating the book with our own drawings.
Sometimes I have them create their own tongue twistersParagraphing. New writers often have a bad habit of clumping all of their text into one or two paragraphs, likely because they don’t entirely understand the purpose of paragraphing, and they think it makes their writing look really long and impressive or something.
